Harman Baweja is not your usual debutant actor who is unsure about himself, and very self-conscious offscreen. Harman knows exactly how his makeup should be, what the camera frame should be, what the backdrop would look best on his black shirt...
What separates him and the regular debutant is the amount of expectations he is carrying on his shoulders because of his hugely-hyped debut in Love Story 2050.
Harman was born on November 13, 1980 in Chandigarh. After the anti-Sikh riots in November 1984, his family moved to Mumbai.
Before he became an actor, he dabbled in hotel management in Switzerland -- "I dropped out after a year because I hated it" -- and then assisted his father, film director Harry Baweja, for seven years.
And then Love Story 2050 happened. Directed by his father, the film also stars Priyanka Chopra, Harman's rumoured girlfriend. I asked Harman to talk about their film together.
